~ Pokédex Entry

Melmetal is a steelSteel Type Pokémon originally from an unknown region. Melmetal is a Pokémon that does not evolve, meaning any candy gained can only be used to power-up the Pokémon or unlock a 2nd charged move. It is one of the few mythical Pokémon currently obtainable in the game.


Melmetal can only be evolved from Meltan. Meltan can be obtained by completing the series of Special Research tasks in Let's Go, Meltan. This special research focuses on the discovery and research of a mysterious PokTemplate:3mon, Meltan, until the player is able to capture it. Meltan can also be captured by using the Mystery Box, an in-game item that only is obtainable by linking and sending a Pokémon to the Nintendo Switch Games Pokémon Let's Go, Pikachu! & Let's Go, Eevee!
